The Pendulum test rig has been by far the busiest of our rigs.
Built to be able to reproduce in-house testing to the level of international facilities and also to validate our simulation models developed in MSC ADAMS and LifeMOD™.
This rig has been used to develop a test protocol and a suite of six tests that Leatt® believes comprehensively characterise the performance of a motorcycle neck brace.
Extensive man-hours have been spent researching, setting up and conducting these tests, analysing the results and refining the test protocol.
Using these tests Leatt® engineers ran a series of comparative tests of several motorcycle neck braces then on the market  measured against a baseline of a rider without a brace.
The results reinforce our conviction of the soundness and pre-eminence of Leatt®’s Alternative Load Path Technology (ALPT™) and the performance of the Leatt® Brace across ALL tests reflect the depth and thoroughness of the research, the design and the testing that has created the Leatt® family of braces.
